NT May Thread - Page 41

post #801 of 815
I had a really hard time believing that I needed meat. But, I feel better at least at this point. I much prefer raw meat to cooked, so I stopped trying to force the cooked stuff down and just ate intuitively. So far it has worked for me. I LOVE raw meat/fish. Haven't done the raw liver yet...no reason, just haven't. I do eat some cooked food, but the vast majority of what I put in my body is raw. Raw eggs, raw beef, raw fish, raw veggies and fruits. I notice a really big difference and I especially love the raw fats. Oh my god, it's like christmas!

But some people might be satisfied with less or with just the dairy and eggs. You never know. The journey from a vegan diet is bad enough without worrying that you'll end up like me, eating liver.

I do think it's very individual, and you have to see what works for you. I have been told over and over that I should avoid grains because I am diabetic. I've been told it will help me lose weight and control my blood sugar to totally be grain-free. But after much experimentation, I found that without any grain, I develop cravings and my weight loss stops. It goes against all that no-grain theory, but for me, if I can have a small bowl of oatmeal or a 1 ounce slice of my homemade sourdough bread each morning, (with butter, of course!), I am a happy person, and don't have cravings and my weight loss goes along steadily. Theories are helpful up to a point, but sometimes there's no substitute for personal experimentation to come up with the right mix for your own body.

I loosely followed the NT recipe using a combo of these soup bones I got from my cattle grower:
Oxtail, Meaty Soup Bones, Stock Short Ribs, Marrow Bones

Last time I used just marrow bones and oxtail from Whole Foods (so likely not pastured).

The main thing I did differently from NT is that I cooked for three days, turning the heat off each night so that the stock cooled in the pot overnight. I got the idea from the Yahoo native nutrition group -- it's called "passive stock making" and is supposed to help with getting the gelatin. Seemed to work for me!

My NT salsa finished tonight! Dh actually likes it, and so do I!! I have not had much success with culturing veggies/fruits, so this is really exciting for me. This is much better than my gingered carrot experience lol!

? for you all~how long does the ketchup last? Mine has been in the fridge for quite sometime now(maybe 5 months?), but it still smells ok. Is it alright to eat?

My NT flop of the week~I forgot about the ww flour I was soaking for banana bread. It had a lovely layer of mold growing when I found it today, YUCK!!

I have been thinking of trying the salsa. did you have to make any changes to the recipe or did you do it just like the book says?

We love love love the salsa here. It's a favorite. I don't add oregano b/c I just don't think it's that great. We are getting radishes out the wazoo from our CSA, so I made a batch with radishes. Not as good as the standard recipe, but I know I'll eat it up.

Could I get the same/almost the same benefits from eating raw/regular butter plus CLO? (The high vitamin butter is just really expensive ($60-8oz).....but if it is really that much better I could probably justify buying it)

Thanks, Jennifer
I'm wondering the same thing. The butter oil is completely out of my league right now.

When I was deciding whether to buy it, I looked up all I could on butter oil. It takes 8 to 9 pounds of cream to make the 8 ounce jar. I get cream at $10 per quart from my cowshare, so that would be $5 per pound, 9 pounds for $45. (and you could either use the cream or make it into butter). So the butter oil is more expensive. I am buying and making as much butter as I can right now, because this is when the grass is growing fast and the cream is really yellow and good, and then I freeze it to have year round. I think that can substitute for the butter oil, maybe about a tablespoon of good raw grassfed butter for 1/2 tsp of oil. I did end up getting the oil as insurance, since I am working on reversing diabetes, but I don't think it's essential, if you have a good source of grass fed raw butter or cream.

Congratulations!

is vernix related to fat consumption? my week late, 9lb 7oz ds still had vernix on him. i can't say how much, he's my first so i have no comparison. not a ton, more than a dab. i hadn't discovered nt yet but was eating a somewhat similar pregnancy diet.
